germany and japan pay for their defense. it's time to not get involved in every single war. now, you know, you would think the finances would make them hesitant about going into libya, but they're not even pausing. i mean, the plans are being laid. so, yes, i think the coalition should be built, and we should work our way out of it. but i'm right now pessimistic that that is going to happen because of the pain of the special interests groups because the many people who come to my office now and say hey, you'd better get this budget in line, usually leave the office by saying please don't cut mine. cut somebody else's. and that's where we are. >> how much of the cutting issues i wouldn't say distract, but are only half the story. we have a huge revenue decline in this country because of unemployment. people don't have jobs, they don't pay taxes, there's not revenue. we have a huge revenue decline in this country because of the dysfunction and screwed-up nature of our housing market. how much is the failure of this congress, the congress before this congress, and we can continue back into h
